Quebec Flood Zone Map Has Major Problems

July 9, 2019

If you were not flooded, be sure to contact the Quebec Government and let them know. They have created quite a mess.

This should not have been implemented until  there was a Public Inquiry. Some homes may have been flooded, due to Dam Mismanagement.

In Quebec and Ontario Thousands of people are calling for a Public Inquiry. Municipalities included.

Bureaucrats booed during flood-map consultation

July 8, 2019

Mistakes were made is an understatement

People were anxious about the potential fallout from the map the Quebec government released last month delineating a zone d’intervention spéciale (ZIS) which, as determined by aerial photography and satellite images, had experienced flooding in 2017 and 2019. But the results did not reflect the reality, resulting in hundreds of West Island homes which had never experienced flooding being included in the ZIS. For the rest of the story Go Here

It’s very arbitrary,” said David Mapp, a Dorval resident.

“It feels like they didn’t respect the contour lines. Our shoreline is definitely a lot further from our house and it doesn’t make any sense, really.”

The map now puts 813 municipalities and thousands of homes in flood zones. For the rest of the story Go Here

Who benefits from the high water?

Sodus Point residents express their frustration with the I.J.C. Go Here For the Story


The Ottawa River did not flood as it has in 2017 and 2019 Until Plan 2014 was implemented. They had less snow in 2017 and 2019 then they had in 2008. If the Ottawa River was gong to flood it would have flooded in 2008. Less snow fall more flooding.  This would apply to most of the Ottawa River right up to the Northern regions. Go Here

On News reports it was said because of so much snow, there was a flood.  Then they add rain. Well when one lie is told ,another lie just might follow.

What is needed is a complete and honest statistics, all the way down the line. Weather wise for at least 25 years, like the statistics above. Not averages, real numbers. Averages mean nothing. Averages are just a way to manipulate the numbers. 100 people make $100 a week, averages out to the average person make $100 a week.  Change that to 98 people make $100 a week and two make $10,000 a week. Boy does that change the average pay for a week. So averages mean nothing. Real numbers do.

Add to that, guess what, the snow melts every winter, It comes it goes. It snows a bit more and some melts. Every winter it does that. That is not a new thing.

When you have a full bath tub and keep adding more water it will flow over if you don’t pull the plug. They keep Lake Ontario levels to  high. They don’t pull the plug in time to stop the over flow, under Plan 2014.  Had they lowered the levels in the Lake maybe all the flooding along the Ottawa River might not have happened. I guess they could not pull the plug Due to Plan 2014. Can’t let go both at the same time. Those along the Ottawa River want a Public Inquiry. They want answers. There is a connection between Lake Ontario and the Ottawa River. The only change over the years is Plan 2014.

Add to that a lot of Dams are operated by a computer from Head Quarters in the Toronto area. So people in the Toronto area, run the dams ,from  hundreds of miles away. This came to light in 2002 after two people were killed. Nothing like that ever happened,,when the locals ran the dam.

How many dams are run using a computer from hundreds of miles away?

 

A few Videos of the Ottawa River Flooding

April 2019 Constance Bay

Mean while Up stream From all of that. There is about 80Km of extremely low water levels.  About 6 feet low. The picture below was taken in May 2019. It had been low for some time.

There is a dam below the low level and one above.

 

Above that low water is a small Place called Mattawa

Everything there was fine until the dam operators decided to dump two feet of water from behind the dam a bit up river from them. They were not given much notice. So due to that they flooded. Considering down river was low the water could have been let out slower.

This is all Climate Change you understand. This is what some news agencies kept saying.

There is a video in the link below,  It also talks about the 2 feet of water dumped on them.

Flooding in Mattawa reaches ‘record levels’Go Here

That is just a bit of insight of things that happened.

No wonder there are a lot of Questions.

Now back to Lake Ontario

Lake Ontario flooding the weather network

Photo Compliments of the Weather Network.

This is about the (IJC) International Joint Commission and Plan 2014

I will attempt to provide the information necessary,, so everyone can understand, how all of this works.  I will also provide News stories and Youtube videos documenting some of the flooding that has occurred.

A Picture is worth a thousand words. Their story needs to be told. Seems the International media is not reporting this.

Many smaller local medias are. To date they have been doing a great job.

Plan 2014 was implemented in January of 2017.

Great Interview This explains Plan 2014 extremely well Go Here

Plan 2014 Go Here

IJC did not listen to the Minority Report Go Here 

The IJC knew the plan would cause flooding.

Under the old plan this type of flooding did not happen.

Now when you see the videos and pictures, try to imagine the shorelines went out much farther then what you are seeing.

The flooding started in May.

Do check the dates on everything. The videos and news reports will not be in sequence.

There is a lot of destruction to the Eco-systems. Wild life Habitat is being destroyed. There were Environmentalist that wanted this plan. They wanted 64,000 acres of more wetland.

13,613 have signed. So far.

Both Canadians and Americans can sign this petition.

This is just a small look at what is happening along Lake Ontario.

The damage is wide spread and ongoing.

Please share this this.

These people need help to have Plan 2014 Repealed and go back to the old plan.

Youtube has a lot on the 2019 flooding.  Check it out.

They are attempting to chalk a lot of it up to climate change.

There have been other years, when there was a lot more snow, so that does not apply.

If anyone has other news reports or links to photos, please add them in the comment section. That would be appreciated.

All comments are moderated. So your comment will be there after approval.  that Keeps the Hate comments out.  I have had a lot of those.
